5 Signs You Should Replace Your Furnace
There are a few signs to look out for when deciding whether to replace your furnace. If you notice any of the following, you should call a furnace installation expert:
Your Furnace Is Old
With constant maintenance, many furnaces can survive for close to 20 years. If your furnace is getting close to that age, it may be time to start preparing for a furnace replacement.
It Needs Frequent Repairs
If you notice that you frequently have to repair your furnace or your recent furnace bills are more than half the cost of a new furnace, it’s time to start planning for furnace replacement.
You Have Higher Utility Bills
As your furnace ages, it starts to lose efficiency. This results in higher utility bills, as your furnace has to work harder to produce heat. A new furnace is far more efficient and takes far less energy to heat your home, resulting in lower utility bills.
It Makes Weird Noises
It is not uncommon for your furnace to make noises as it runs. However, if there is a rattling, banging, or screeching noise, it could mean something has come loose and could be causing damage to your furnace.
The Burner Flame Is Yellow
When your furnace is working normally, the burner flames are blue. If you notice yellow flames, this is because your furnace isn’t burning efficiently. It may even mean your furnace is producing harmful carbon monoxide.
The Benefits of Replacing Your Furnace
You may be tempted to hold on to your furnace as long as possible, but even the most skilled HVAC technician can only do so much through frequent repairs. Luckily, there are many benefits to choosing to replace your furnace instead.
The benefits of replacing your furnace include:
Improved Energy Efficiency
Many new furnace models are far more efficient than their older counterparts. This is a major advantage when it comes to paying utility bills.
Along with more efficiency comes better performance. Where your old furnace would break down or stop running at random times, newer models are more consistent and dependable when it comes to heating your home day in and day out.
Newer furnaces also come with the option of integrating a smart thermostat. This way, you have more control over the temperature as well as enjoy more features and settings.
Which Furnace Is Best For You?
When deciding which furnace is best for you, there are two main options to choose from. Gas and electric furnaces both have their advantages and disadvantages, and it often comes down to personal preference. Here are some of the benefits of each.
These are typically more powerful and generally more cost-efficient. However, they usually have a more expensive upfront installation cost.
An electric furnace, on the other hand, does not need venting and requires less general maintenance. They also have a lower upfront cost, but they lack overall power and are a bit more expensive in the long run than a gas furnace.
